Good-looking Ghost In My Mom's Townhouse


My parents have been divorced for twelve years now, and we've been living in a townhouse for eleven years. Shortly after we moved in (two-three months), I sensed something was different about this house. Something didn't seem to be quite right.

I brushed it off as being nothing, but a few months after I felt it, my mother told us that there was a ghost in the house. He was a tall, well-built man with red hair and beard and sparkling eyes.

When we would be away at my dad's (they have shared custody of us), he would appear to her often when she was in bed. He would lie down beside her when she was flat on her back, try to startle her when she was lying on her side or stand by her bed and look at her. She wasn't bothered by it, was smiling when she told us about it and told us that she only saw him once. She was walking up the stairs and he suddenly appeared, running up in front of her, laughing like he wanted to have a little bit of fun.

I found it a little creepy when she told us but soon came to accept it and I would wonder if he showed up when I would be lying in bed at the other house. She never saw him again but I can still feel something, as though he or another friendly entity is watching over us.

I hope none of you think I am crazy, I would simply like to know if anyone has experienced something similar.

you didn't confuse me, and he (the ghost) seems freindly, if you ever see him you should try to talk to him and write back

He does sound friendly and I guess I confused a few of you in my story (I'm French so my English isn't always right 😊

If it explains it all, she knew he was there because she could feel him in the room. She could also tell by this feeling how close or far away he was.

like luvparanormal said you mentioned that "she only saw him once", but you also said that "he would appear to her often when she was in bed. He would lie down beside her when she was flat on her back, try to startle her when she was lying on her side or stand by her bed and look at her"😕 clarification for this... Thank you.

Maybe you need to have a serious talk with your mother and get the facts straight. I have to agree with Surya... Much of what you said doesn't make sense. Since this sounds like a borderline incubus encounter, gathering the facts could be of great importance. Does your mother want things to go further? There are a lot of unanswered questions here, don't you think? 😕 Take care.

I am a little confused. You indicated that it would lay next to your mom in bed and then you mentioned she was running up the stairs, but that she only saw him once?
I might have missed read it.

Flirtatious is the word, and already almost at "2nd base," (i.e. In bed with her). Rent the movie, "The Entity." True story near my town, of two ghosts who hold down a woman, while the 3rd rapes her.
Yours was playful? Or a stalker? Sounds like...touching, is next, if he were to return. Don't you think?
You sure, your mom isn't just telling you he's gone?...People love admirers.
A popular actress on a morning show couple months ago, said she bought an old farmhouse in Connecticut, and that her fiance playfully chased her around the coffee table in front of the fireplace. Then her REAL fiance walked in. You never know who/what a ghost is. 😲

Hm, it sounds like he knows that your mom might be lonely now that she's on her own, so maybe he's trying to make her feel better? Either way, he doesn't sound like anything to be afraid of!
